ProRealTime doesn't show Balance, Equity, Used Margin

Question

It seems that the PRT version by IG doesn't display the portfolio balance or equity or used margins.  In the user manual, those features are there and available under the "Trading" menu, but no in IG's version.  Why would such an important feature not be included.  Am I doing something wrong?

You are correct, neither IG's version, nor PRT premium show your account balance and so on. This shortcoming has been known for a long time. Why it is the way, I can't tell.

IG seems very limited in regard to these issues.  I'm currently researching other brokers.  The limitation of research tools and Filtering of the Instruments is also an issue.

If having sight of your balance is important try opening 2 tabs and logging in on IG on both.

Use one tab to show the Trading platform and the other tab to show My IG (this shows funds/Margin/Available/Profit+Loss on the main Dashboard).

    • yes they will be on less charts but I understand your point about the size of the moves in ftse, no harm in trialing them though you might find marking out the immediate prior high and low has more relevance.  
    • Yeah, I keep an eye on volume, that's why it's showing at the bottom of my chart However, I haven't been able to discover a strong relation between volume spikes and trend direction. Sometimes I see orders of the magnitude of 10-20k and the chart doesn't do anything special. Other times you see just average volume and the chart does huge turnarounds. For example what happened at 8.30 with that spike down and then going straight back up and making new highs vs previous candle? All happened on low volume
    • @jameswalker1 my recommendation is trade the demo account to get a better understanding of the costs associated. I traded demo for nearly 2 years before placing my first real trade. It will save you in the long run to get a better understanding of the costs involved.
